Hui Kūpa‘a means many hands working together. PHOCUSED is coordinating the Hui Kūpa‘a project which was designed to improve service delivery by focusing on better coordination and more efficient use of existing resources. Based on collaboration models that have been successful on the mainland, this project has formed six working groups of ten to twenty members each. All groups are co-led by one representative from the state and one from the private nonprofit sector with the groups’ membership even more diverse. The working groups will focus on topics that came from both the Governor’s New Day Plan and recommendations from the Directors of Human Services and Health.
Using data, each group will assess where there is the greatest need for action and establish a clear baseline in order to track and measure their progress as they move forward. We hope that this project will encourage a culture of collaboration and efficiency within the service delivery system.
